Police worker facing 30 charges
A police worker chosen to carry the Olympic torch in London last summer has been charged with 30 offences.

Michael Eke, 37, was suspended as a stores manager for Cambs Police when he was arrested in February.

A force spokesman said Mr Eke's alleged offences included obtaining property by deception, theft, false accounting and using a false instrument.

Mr Eke, of Plover Drive, March, has been released on bail to appear before Wisbech magistrates on 6 December.

He was among 140 chosen to carry the flame on the London leg of its 78-day journey to the Athens Games last summer.

He was made an MBE for his services to the community in November 2003.
